Maziar already gave you the correct answer. Why are you arguing with him? And for that matter, where do you get off calling the AMD Phenom II X4 P920 a weak cpu? How many other craptops do you know of that have a Quad-Core CPU in them? There aren't many and they certainly don't compare to their desktop counterparts. I know the laptop you're talking about because I've personally recommended it to several people as a fantastic gaming laptop for under $800. You're obviously referring to the ASUS N52DA-X1 on sale for $780 at newegg. You now have TWO people who know WAY more about x86 computers telling you that the N52DA-X1 is the way to go. And NO, the i7 and 5650 will NOT give you a better gaming experience than the P920 and 5730 because all a CPU has to do is NOT bottleneck the GPU to get max performance. The 5650 with the i7 will give you a WORSE gaming experience because the 5650 can't match the 5730 and the 5730 won't be bottlenecked by the P920. Marios doesn't know what he's talking about but Maziar and I both do.
